Summer Soiree: Pretty In Paradise lured a stylish crowd to the Cabana Bar in Wexford on July 25 where the scene could easily be summed up in two words: young and beautiful. Hosted by Pretty Living PR, the event served as a fundraiser for UPMC's Cancer Center for Melanoma Research, drawing 250 guests to the beachy, outdoor venue.

Fashionistas as far as the eye could see were employing some clever maneuvering through the sandy spots, sky-high stilettos doing nothing to deter the likes of Pretty Living co-owner Allyn Lewis, Miss Pennsylvania Annie Rosellini, Miss Laurel Highlands Ashley Schmider and Elena LaQuatra from making the rounds.

Meanwhile, Suzanne Buczak rocked a retro look, Mike Namey, Nicole Namey, Zoe Namey and Paul Namey were enjoying their perch at the bar, and makeup artist Brazil Raine was putting the finishing touches on a runway full of models showing off 32 looks from Cleveland-based designer Andrea Howell's Tidal Cool Creations.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
